Bengaluru Bulls vs U Mumba Match Prediction: Who will win today's Pro Kabaddi 2017 match?
In Match No. 98 of the Pro Kabaddi League Season 5, the Bengaluru Bulls will locks horns against U Mumba as a part of the Inter-Zone Challenge Week at the Thyagraj Sports Complex in New Delhi.
The Bengaluru Bulls are coming into this match on the back of a loss against the Bengal Warriors while U Mumba notched up a win in their last clash against Dabang Delhi.
The Bengaluru Bulls have had a mixed run of sorts in the league so far and have not been able to embark on a winning run as yet. They have struggled when it comes to putting forth a consistent all-round performance with all seven players on the mat contributing to the scoreline. The bright spark for the team, however, has been their talismanic skipper, Rohit Kumar who has lit up the mat time and again with his stellar attacking performances.
To aid him in the raiding department, do-or-die specialist, Ajay has been quite impressive in certain instances alongside the young gun Garish Naik who picked up a Super-10 in the last match. The defence is manned by Kuldeep, Ravinder Pahal in the corner position along with Mahender Singh, the latter two notching up a High-5 in the last fixture with their lethal tackles. To add an element of balance to the squad, either Ashish Kumar or Sunil Jaipal, both all-rounders are included in the side, given their prowess to raid as well as defend.
U Mumba, on the other hand, is led by Captain Cool Anup Kumar who has positioned himself more as an all-rounder in this edition, contributing equally to the defence as well as the attack. In this light, the primary raiding responsibility falls on the shoulders of Kashiling Adake and Srikanth Jadhav both of whom have been in stellar form in the recent fixtures.
The defence features the likes of Kuldeep Singh and Hadi Oshtorak usually manning the corner positions on the mat. Surinder Singh has given glimpses of his defensive prowess but the major issue with the young gun has been the increased number of failed advance tackle attempts. To complete the starting seven, coach Bhaskaran would have a choice between Shabeer Bapu, Darshan Kadian and Dong Ju Hong.
Bengaluru Bulls vs U Mumba match prediction
U Mumba looks well balanced to take up the Bengaluru challenge but it will definitely be a match where the result will not come with ease and hence the match will go down the wire, a slender margin win in the offing.
